|Bingo At Home (circa 1958) (first half of 60-minute episode)|
A partial episode of a local (New York City) television series called "Bingo at Home". This series aired on station WABD-TV. The station produced many fine TV series in the 1950s, but this is probably one of the their weakest efforts. Hosted by Monty Hall, and with original commercials. Sound quality is extremely poor with very heavy hiss, and at times it is impossible to hear what anyone is saying.

|Classic Television for Coca-Cola (Number 2)|
Another classic commercial for Coca-Cola, a charming old commercial from February 19, 1954. This aired as part of WABD-TV's "Sense and Nonsense" program, and the complete telecast has also been uploaded by me several months ago. WABD-TV was the flagship station of the legendary DuMont Television Network, one can see a good example of DuMont's always interesting set design in this commercial.
